The moving ceremony commemorating those killed in the attacks in Buenos Aires took place last Tuesday (July 18), at a monument erected in memory of them, in the 'tet' neighborhood in Be'er-Sheva.
The attack on the Israeli embassy in Argentina was one of two attacks in Buenos Aires (capitol of Argentina) in the 1990's, against Israeli and Jewish targets, killing 29 people, and it was considered the most serious attack against Jews abroad since the establishment of the State of Israel. Two years later, a similar attack occurred at the Jewish Community Building killing 86 people.
The ceremony was overseen by the Events Department of the Be'er-Sheva municipality and was held in the presence of Mayor Ruvik Danilovitch, the Deputy Mayor, holding the education and welfare portfolios, Dr. Heftsi Zohar, City Council members Mina Kalman Hadad and Gil Shechtman, who serves as the head of the 'Anashim' organization, the Director of the Kivunim Association Shlomi Numa, President of the Association of Immigrants in Be'er-Sheva, Dr. Carlos Blank, representatives and organizations of Latin American immigrants, WIZO, representatives of families of those killed and wounded in terror attacks and many other public figures.
